FOLLOWING THE GREEN GAME PLAN
Setting out to build an environmentally friendly home, former NBA player Mike Doleac learned plenty throughout the process and benefited from having a wellrounded team. He and his family ended up with an energy efficient home that features relatively new-to-North America technologies.

When you’ve played at the highest levels of a sport and been coached by someone as hard-nosed as college basketball coach Rick Majerus, it’s easy to recognize the value in hiring an uncompromising general contractor to build your home. Thus, when Mike Doleac was starting the process of building a new 6,500-square-foot home in Park City, Utah, he liked the fact that his builder, Scott Ellerbeck of Ellerbeck Construction Inc. in Draper, Utah, was, shall we say, a bit aggressive in his expectations of his subcontractors and the construction process.

Doleac played a key role on Majerus’ University of Utah basketball team that reached the 1998 NCAA basketball Final Four, and went on to play 10 years in the NBA for six teams, and he is one who prefers having a detailed game plan. “I like to have a thought process, and I believe that even if the thoughts are incorrect, it’s so important to have a process that’s based on a rationale,” he said. “I don’t like it when people just move forward without thought.”

“My wife and I wanted the house to be an eco-friendly home despite its size and we spent a lot of time doing all the legwork to get the right team members in place,” Doleac said. In addition to Ellerbeck as GC, they ended up selecting: The Highland Group as architect; Carl Pond Plumbing & Heating Inc. for the thermal/solar aspects of the project; Gardner Engineering Alternative Energy Services, for the photovoltaic system; and Narco Plumbing and Heating for the radiant floor tubing installation.
